It’s been almost exactly one year since I shot these amazing cars (Here and Here if you haven’t seen them already) for the first time back in December of 2011. Since then both cars have evolved for the better, not that there was anything wrong with them the first time!
Jin’s beautiful LS has a new set of wheels and a slew of new interior pieces as well.
The rear of the car has received an update as well, going for a cleaner look.
Here is a comprehensive list of all the mods done to the car:

That brings us to Cesar’s boosted GS. Most of the changes since you last saw the car are on the exterior, but a few things have been cleaned up under the hood as well.
You might notice that the exhausts look a little different. They’re actually the same pipes, just pushed out a little more.
